Hi.

I'm in the market to replace my aging Sony MDR-EX71SL. For me, I'd love to get a Sony MDR-NX1 but to my disappointment, the cord is only 0.5m long ... :cry:

Are there any worthy alternative to this model? I'm looking for 3 important features (other than great sound), they are long cords, silicon earbud for good fit and neck strap ...

TIA! :)

i tested panasonic with sony at the store and even read the specifications.
Panasonic (ear buds type) apparently has a wider sound range...
so i bought the set and am happy :)

the cord is definitely long enough but there is no neck strap...

tink those short-length cords are designed for players with in-line remotes that come with a 3mm earphone jack or neck-sling portable players...

There's the MDR81 I believe which is a hook-on-the-ear design.

Why do you need a neck strap with long cords? You can use the extention from the EX71? Intent to hang your mp3 player on your neck? But dun need a long cord rite?

Etymotic ER6i....very similar sounding to Sennheiser HD580 to my ears.

Around US$90 from Amazon excluding shipping.

lol! You guys obviously did not read his requirements. I dun think any earphone has a neck-strap and long cord. Sorry, it doesn't make sense to me if i have my player hanging on the neck-strap and requiring a long cord. I tot short is better and neater.

Cloest i can think of is Cresyn LMX-E630SN; neck strap and able to convert to 0.8m normal Y cord.

And i think the ER6i is overhyped. :)

Hi I think we have a different idea of the 'neck strap'. I'm referring to the neck strap design that is found in the Sony MDR-NX1. I'm not planning to hang my iPOD using a neck-strap.

Erm....the earphone you showed is a neck-strap one. For hanging your ipod. So you want that type of design but with longer cord so you can put your ipod in a bag? Or you meant neck-chain like a EX71? So far, there isn't a design thay combines a neck-strap with a long cord i think.
